Ensemble Correspondances

Tue 5 Feb 2019

Founded a decade ago in Lyon by the organist and harpsichordist Sébastien Daucé, this ensemble of specialist vocalists and instrumentalists is passionate about rediscovering musical forms and composers now almost forgotten.

This concert recreates life in the salons of Louis XIII’s court with vocal music reflecting themes of night, love and poetry alongside some of the ballet music featured in the court carnivals which were a mixture of art, socialising and politics and which marked the end of winter at the Louvre court. Ensemble Correspondances are simply unrivalled in this repertoire and bring their spine-tingling talents to Brighton Festival for the first time.
